    I can't agree that the end of Ramadan is only on the 10th. Few sunni countries just declared that the end of Ramadan is on Thursday. However, Shia countries and few others, declared the end of Ramadan is on Friday, making the Eid holiday on 9/11. I think CNN still right. Do we celebrate: sure yes, if the ignorate can't understand that this is a major holiday for Muslims and respect it, just like Muslims respect other religious holidays, that is their problem, get educated to the ignorates, and see how life will get mush easier.

    The end of Ramadan is on the 10th not the 11th and they can't burn Korans because it is agenst the amendment 1. The 11th may still be a holliday this year for them but it isn't because of 9/11. Eid-Al-Fitr is a three day feast and whaile one day does fall on 9/11 it isn't like they did it on to insault us, it wasn't a choise. I'm Christian and I have a right to believe what I believe without people burning bibles on an importaint day for us and not punish us for something a few people did, Muslims should have the same right.

      In some cultures it might be a 3 day feast, or even more. But as far the religion goes, only the one day is an actual holiday. And I have never seen American Muslims celebrate more than the one day. So nothing falls on 9/11.

    This is really getting ridiculous. CNN, you are creating stories now. The end of Ramadan will not fall on September 11. It takes a simple search and look at an Islamic calendar to figure this out. why do you keep running a false story?

    One more time or more if needed:

    Considering all Muslims including AGA have been victimized by the great Gabriel con, on 9/11 they should burn their korans. And Christians should burn their NT's come Easter for being victimized by the great Resurrection con!!
